Alright...let's just get this out of the way right now.
This morning I was enjoying my usual ritual of coffee and blog perusing. It's so quiet in the mornings here...birds singing...breeze rustling through the trees.
As I was trying to navigate through this new territory of blogville, I clicked on what I thought was the button to follow a new blog I had found.
I am now MY OWN follower.
Yep, that's right....I am follower #60 on my own blog!
Go ahead - laugh - I'll wait.................................
OK so now that we've all had a good giggle I wanted to share a few pictures of my morning walk with you. Sorry no stitchy photos today as I haven't done any stitching since yesterday afternoon when I last posted.
This one isn't a pic of my walk....but of a beautiful basket of eggs that we received from the farmer down the road. He's the same one that has the miniature horses.
Now how do you like the look on this big boy's face? I don't think he thought that much of me so I clicked quickly and moooooved on.
Here's another one of Momma with her new baby. If you look closely you can see his ears sticking up out of the grass in front of her. Mr. Farmer is concerned about the new little one...something is wrong with his back legs. It's so pitiful to see him try to walk but he manages.
My new desktop.
About two weeks ago another farmer's mare a bit farther on down the road had her stallion! You should see this whopper's legs! He's long and lean and will be very handsome as he grows up.
Here in the country some folks don't tie their dogs up, which is fine with me as long as they are friendly. I think it's good to let them roam around the farm. This handsome pooch became my personal guide for a while during my walk this morning.
I thought this was a good shot looking down the entryway to an old barn used to store farming equipment.
In response to a couple questions/comments:
Jules: My husband retired from the Navy after 23 years as a Masterchief. He served on alot of aircraft carriers and did two tours of instructor duty. I am so VERY PROUD of him. I prefer to call him Masterchief on here. It gives me shivers!!
Deb: The scissor frog top and bottom were both bought at an Antique Mall not far from me here in KY. I picked up the top and then went looking through the HUGE building for a bottom piece it would fit in to. It's a sherbet cup, I believe but I think it's cute.
Meadows08: No, I don't get bored with stitching all in one color. You'd think I would but I guess I like not having to worry about what symbol is what color, etc...
That's it for today friends. Thank you for taking a stroll with me this morning. We must do it again soon. It's so peaceful in this part of the country. On a calm day we can hear the boats down on the lake.
Thank you all for your lovely comments and for spending a moment with me here. It is so greatly appreciated! Hopefully there will be stitchy progress to show in the next couple days.
***Masterchief would like to thank those of you who showed an interest in the BBQ giveaway possibility*** Meanwhile I'm sitting here thinking....
"You can't be serious, BBQ sauce on a cross stitch blog"???
Until next time....
